The prosecutor, Shogunle Adenekan told the court that all parties involved in the matter have reached plea bargain.
He then asked the court for a suspended sentence for the lecturer.
At the previous hearing, Richard Iyiola Akindele was denied bail and was accused of making incantation while making his report with the prosecutor.
